Re: Sketching a Catenary
Jim Sculley Jan 23, 2014 8:41 AM (in response to Jordan Richards)SW doesn't accept hyperbolic functions like cosh in equations or equation driven curves. Try the longer form:
0.5*a*(exp(t/a) + exp(1*(t/a)))

Re: Sketching a Catenary
Jarred Mosdal Apr 17, 2015 1:20 PM (in response to Jim Sculley)I agree that SW doesn't like COSH(a), but I just want to point out that the help file says that SW does do hyperbolic cosine. See the link.
2012 SOLIDWORKS Help  Functions: COSH
Maybe SW programmers need to talk to SW help file writers. I cannot make this work for an equation derived function either.
